Motorhomes & Caravans Shipping Services
The DAZMAC Automotive division does not just import cars! Our volume and shipping line contracts allow us to offer competitive rates with all Roll on Roll off (RO/RO) shipping lines into and out of Australia. American & British Caravan and Motorhome are very popular in Australia. The high Australian dollar and high standard of British built motorhomes which are also right hand drive and have electrical systems makes it very worthwhile to import a new or used motorhome from the UK. There is also less compliance on the caravan with the electrics and also the doors and caravan width being the same as Australia.
Motorhomes & caravan imported for the USA require compliance from left hand drive to right, the lighting and electrical systems. Doors need on the on the read or right hand side of the motorhomes or caravans to get registration for use in Australia. Motorhomes imported which are older than 30 years can in most states be registered as left hand drive for road use.
We run regular container consolidations for motorhomes & caravans from Los Angeles CA & Charleston SC, as well as from the UK to Australia. These shared containers reduce your shipping costs. We utilise roll on roll off vessels for importing and exporting larger motorhomes and caravans.
